What customers say about "Key Specs"
Skullcandy 50/50
  • Great sound, you can hear every single sound that the music plays, and the quality is amazing. Very crisp and clear.
  • The cable length is good (At least if not over 3Ft, don't know the actual measurements off hand).
  • The nylon braid of the cable makes them notoriously difficult to break and the type of rubber jacket over the cable is durable and strong.
  • The wire that Skullcandy uses is rather weak, and I have had several pairs of these earbuds due to issues both at the jack and at the bud itself.
  • The buds are made from thin plastic, and have come apart before, causing a wiring issue.
Skullcandy Smokin' Buds 2 Noise Isolating Earbuds with In-Line Microphone and Remote
  • I love these headphones. Skull candy is the only company that makes affordable yet great quality earphones!
  • Good investment for a decent quality head buds. Skull candy is my go to headphones brand. They are comfortable and the sound quality is very, very good.
  • I am a big fan of the age old skullcandy method earphones. Those babies lasted two and half years with exceptional sound quality.
  • The housing and plug are made of cheap plastic. I think its gonna be work for a little time.
  • Unfortunately the plastic earbuds make the insides of my ears sweat. I know, it's weird, but it's a review so there's the truth.

What customers say about "Features"
Skullcandy 50/50
  • The cord never seems to get tangled like other headsets. Nice bass and lightweght.
  • The in-line controller works wonders and is simple to use with my iPhone and I use it occasionally when receiving/making calls.
  • The mic according to my friends is the same if not better than the standard iPhone mic.
  • The ear-buds come with 2 extra sets of Silicone Gel sizes (One Small, One Large) which can perfectly stay in the carrying case with the built in pocket inside.
  • The only real flaw I found is the case itself since it's not fully shown and misleading to be a full nylon hard carrying case.
Skullcandy Smokin' Buds 2 Noise Isolating Earbuds with In-Line Microphone and Remote
  • These earphone are comfortable enough, have sufficiently good sound quality, and have a relatively nice tangle resistant cable.
  • The earphones uses flat cables which feels like flattened thin rubber. They feel like soft linguine in terms of thinness and softness.
  • The bass is amazing, everything else is clear and crisp, the cord is easy to untangle as well.
  • I have experienced a number of issues with the inline mic and button. In particular the inline button is far too easy to press accidentally.
  • The microphone is positioned on the left ear instead of the right, the quality of the microphone I found is inferior to those on the EarPods.
